Abstractions in solo show at Country Club of Terre Haute have forever homes

2018 CBAA Associate Members Show-a rose Blossoming Madly

I am honored to announce that two of my photography-based digital art abstractions featured in my solo show in the Country Club of Terre Haute have forever homes.

In April, a rose “Blossoming Madly” caught the eye of a young mother dining with family at the Country Club in the Allendale area of Terre Haute.

Abstract of wildflowers in May

And on Mother’s Day, I was surprised by daughters of a Terre Haute woman wanting to honor their mother with her favorite among all the artwork, “(Lavender Blue) Dilly Dilly.” (By coincidence, I must note that the original for this abstraction was an image I made of wildflowers in May a few years ago.)

Both images  and their titles spoke to these daughters’ and mothers’ hearts in a special way and that makes my heart sing!

You see, both of these images and titles are unique to me and hold special meaning for me. Growing up, my mother’s nickname was “Rosebud” and in later year’s “Rose.” I also grew up with a love for one of my Dad’s favorite folk singers, Burl Ives, and the original version of “Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly).”

Several other abstractions are featured through mid-June in Arts Illiana’s Community Outreach Gallery space in the Country Club of Terre Haute.

‘Chihuly Glass Ceiling’ awarded First Place in photography at Wabash Valley Art Guild Spring Show

Chihuly Glass Ceiling 1st Place

“Chihuly Glass Ceiling,” photography on aluminum, was awarded First Place in the Wabash Valley Art Guild’s 39th annual Spring Art Show in Clabber Girl Museum and Gallery in Terre Haute, Indiana.

I captured a sampling of the 1,700 Dale Chihuly blown glass creations covering the floating glass ceiling beneath his Fireworks of Glass Tower sculpture installation in The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

Chihuly’s pieces were inspired by undersea plants and creatures, chandeliers, flowers, and other forms.

I was inspired by the sea of red, yellow, cobalt blue, lime, purple and orange shapes backlit by the summer sun shining through the Pergola Ceiling between the sculpture and the viewing room on the lower level.

Winners in all categories at the WVAG’s Spring Art Show can be viewed throughout May in The Gallery  at Clabber Girl Museum.
